Information about an alleged successor to last year’s Xiaomi Redmi Pro has surfaced on Chinese blogging website Weibo. The legitimacy of the leak has not been confirmed yet, but the user who posted the info claims his image is that of a legitimate product poster for the upcoming device.
Alleged specifications for the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 reveal two variants of the phone – a premium one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and a cheaper version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Unlike last year’s dual-cam Redmi Pro, this phone features only one camera on the back – a 12MP shooter with a Sony IMX362 sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus at its core. The Redmi Pro 2 will allegedly sport the same full HD 5.5-inch, Chinese-made OLED display as its predecessor.
Both versions of the Redmi Pro were powered by Mediatek CPUs, but the new device will reportedly sport a Snapdragon 66x chipset. Another difference from last year’s model is the bump in battery capacity – from the already quite generous 4050 mAh, up to 4500 mAh.
Another interesting bit of information revealed by the leaked poster is the pricing for both models of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2. The base model with 4GB RAM/64GB storage will go for roughly around $230, while the premium variant with 6GB RAM/128GB storage will be priced at $260.
